This is no ricer wing, its a full blown Aeromotions CFD designed wing. The Aeromotions wing can be had with electromechanical actuators and a computer control unit for active aero control. Ryan uses it without the electronics.
The wings adjustment is here. This is where the actuators go for the active version of the wing.
|This metal bracket helps reinforce the deck lid from the strain of the wings downforce.
The exterior has stuff that is a cross between cosmetic and functional. A Voltex front lip fortified with an AMS 3D carbon splitter provides downforce as does an ultra trick to kill for Aeromotions static carbon rear wing. The Aeromotions wing is developed using CFD or computational fluid dynamics and is far from a ricer piece of bling. Seibon carbon doors, trunk lid and hood shave hundreds of pounds of weight from the EVO as does the AMS carbon Kevlar roof and carbon headlight assemblies. Andy Blackmore Design is responsible for the striking reverse image graphical wrap and a JDM RS grill is the one purely cosmetic bit on the car.
AMS carbon kevlar roof sheds weight from the highest position of the car where it can do the most good.
AMS built this basic cage. The Recaro seat has clearance for a HANS device and head protectors. Takata harnesses are Ryan’s choice for restraints.
The rear of the cage ties the suspension to the rest of the structure.
A basic fire extingusher and a lightweight dry cell battery.
|For Redline’s Modified class the rules say that the factory dash and door panels must remain.
The interior is also very simple. A Recaro Pro Racer HANS device compatible SPG seat provides support and critical head protection while Takata harnesses provide a good level of safety. An AMS Delrin shift knob is an ergonomic feature. AEM gauges mounted in a Stri dash gauge pods monitor engine functions.
We really think this delrin AMS shit knob is cool!
The carbon AMS headlight covers shed a bunch of weight.
|AEM and Stri gauges are simply mounted.
|We forgot the name of this horsey… Hopefully Ryan’ll chime in soon so we can update the caption!
A lot of the credit for this car’s amazing level of performance goes to Ryan’s remarkable driving ability. For those of you who would like to build a competitive Time Attack car, Ryan’s car is an example that it can be done without a full professional race prep shop and without tons of costly custom developed parts. Ryan’s car is the king of off the shelf parts. Ryan would like to thank his sponsors; K&N engineering, Nitto Tires, Etnies, Mitsubishi Motors, AMS Performance, Rays Wheels, Carbonetic, JRZ Suspension, Seibon, Girodisc, and Forced Performance. For 2010, look out for Ryan and his Evo X to do big things, much bigger things!
